    So I'm applying for internships at the moment for next summer. Just finished my first year at Southampton uni.

    I've been applying for work placements for this summer since October and have gotten nowhere. :rolleyes:

    This has basically made me pessimistic about my chances of getting a second year internship.

    I have applied to SEO London and Rare Recruitment as they're meant to help in terms of finding internships but they haven't gotten back to me.

    Has anyone gotten work through these recruitment agencies before?

    Currently applying to:

    JP Morgan


    Yh i understand ur pessimism. I feel the same. 4th time applying with seo. They donr really help tbh. I would strongly recommend u keep seo on the side and apply directly to all the banks. Make use of ur careers service at uni

    Hey guys, just thought you would like to know that SEO have several internship routes available such as the Early Bird route and the standard route. The Early Bird is now closed unfortunately but the standard route is still available. I'm not sure where you applied for but a friend of mine applied last week for the standard route and received an email back after a couple of days.

    I am currently on the Early Bird route so just waiting to hear back from any IB firms for interviews. I suggest you practice online numerical reasoning tests as well as I am aware that many firms use these as a screening process for applications.
